Job Description

Lead Application Security Specialist

Salary: $110k to $170k-ish Flex + 4.5% Bonus

Location: Preferably Bloomington, IL or Alpharetta, GA, Minneapolis, MN

Selling Point:

I do have a role open for Application Security, the range for that role is $106K - $190K but we need to have some breathing room at the top end or they will run out of Salary cap room. The role would really be someone to lead the expansion and maturation of our Application Security program. Everything from traditional SAST/DAST, Secure Coding Standards, Developer Education, Integration/Automation of code analysis (CI/CD).

The preference for this role is here in Bloomington, IL but for the right candidate we would consider the other locations. If that is the case they would need to be willing to travel to the HO on a regular basis to interact with the Security and Development teams.
